This has a chance of passing the [House of Representatives], malaki ang tsansa
"This has a chance of passing the [House of Representatives], malaki ang tsansa," Pimentel said.
Senate president said the complaint needs only at least 100 votes of House members and SpeakerPantaleon Alvarez has the solid support of at least 230 congressmen.
"'Pag ginamit ang imagination sa political, kung si Speaker Alvarez ang magli-lead [ng impeachment laban kay Robredo], ilan ang followers niyan? Two hundred thirty. So 100 ang kailangan doon na suportahan siya doon, so lulusot iyon," Pimentel said.
"Pagdating sa possible impeachment ni VP Robredo mabuti pa kaming mga senador, no commentkasi nga sa aking political assessment may chance talaga na lumusot iyan, given the number," he added.
Meanwhile, Solicitor General Jose Calida said that Leni Robredo should be impeached because her "palit-ulo" video statement played during a United Nations (UN) forum was "treasonous."
Interior and Local Government Assistant Secretary Epimaco Densing and volunteer lawyers also willing to provide help in pursuing Leni’s impeachment.
Magdalo member Senator Antonio Trillanes denied Robredo's supposed role in the impeachment move against President Duterte.
"Wala siyang kinalaman dito. Ito magdalo ang gumawa nito. Inisyatibo ito at aksyon ng Magdalo... Wala hong nasa likod namin, kami lang ito," he said.
Senator Trillanes said the Duterte’s allies should not be overconfident because "a lot of things may happen within the next month."
